Mercedes started mass producing cars after World War II. In 1946 a thousand or so Mercedes were produced each year. The 170S was the first mass produced Mercedes and within a year a so the 170D Diesel was introduced, and became quite popular.

In 1947 (1) Mercedes was sold in the USA. In 1948 (2) Mercedes were sold in the USA. In 1949, USA sales jumped to (13), so the Mercedes diesel has been around since the first produced models, I'd guess Mercedes made diesels before 1949, since they started making cars in 1914.
